Bulgaria will open tenders for the construction of Lot 3 of the Struma motorway by the end of the first half of 2015 at the latest, the regional development ministry said.

Struma’s Lot 3 is divided into three sections. The first section, which will connect the town of Blagoevgrad and the village of Krupnik, will have a length of 21 km and is estimated at 150 million levs. It will also include a 2.0 km tunnel worth 200 million levs.

The second section of the lot will have a combined length of 22 km and will include a 15 km tunnel. It will connect the villages of Krupnik and Kresna and will have a total value of 1.1 billion levs.

The third section, which is estimated at 200 million levs, connects Kresna with Sandanski and has a length of 23 km.

The Struma motorway, with a total length of 173.28 km, connects Sofia with the Greek border and is part of pan-European transport Corridor IV. Its construction is divided into four lots. Lot 1 was completed last summer, Lot 4 is under construction and Lot 2 and Lot 3 are at a design stage. The motorway project is financed under the EU-funded operational programme Transport and Transport Infrastructure.
